Catalog #N2050-06
Dose for significant outgrowth of neurite using PC-12 rat pheochromocytoma cells 10ng/ml. 7S NGF has a variety of effects on sensory and sympathetic neuron growth and development.3 7S NGF is also needed for sympathetic nerve cells development and maintenance.
Biological ActivityDose for significant outgrowth of neurite using PC-12 rat pheochromocytoma cells: 10ng/ml. 7S NGF has a variety of effects on sensory and sympathetic neuron growth and development. 7S NGF is also needed for sympathetic nerve cells development and maintenance.
Extinction Coefficient ( E1%, 280nm, pH 7.0) 14.2
SterilitySterilized through a 0.2um membrane filter and packaged aseptically.
NGF Assay:
1. Coat 6 well dishes with rat tail collagen type I, at a concentration of 2.5-5.0ug/cm2. Incubate for one hour at 37°C. Aspirate and rinse 2 times with PBS before adding cell suspension.
2. Prepare a cell suspension to yield 2x10e4 cells/ml in RPMI-1640/10% horse serum/ 5% FBS. Add 2mls of cell suspension to each well.
3. Prepare NGF as described above under Rehydration to a final concentration of 1ug/ml. Add appropriate amounts of NGF to test at 0, 5, 10 and 20ng/ml final concentration.
4. Incubate plates at 37°C for 3-5 days.
5. Record neurite outgrowth at each NGF concentration.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for 6 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
